they are the definition of -- the last business to oil on boylston street. >> lester has the right idea. bike riding at 8:00 on a saturday morning when it's absolutely gorgeous outside. but some area where it's chilly, down to the plains and into the southeast where temperatures will be about 15 to 20 degrees below average. normal high in atlanta, 88 degrees and it's only going to hit about 71 degrees today. mostly because of the clouds and the showers and that moisture streaming in off the gulf of mexico. so another six to eight inches of rain is possible in parts of the southeast. especially in areas like southeastern louisiana. through the d here's a u voo of the golden gate bridge where the tops are blocked by some clouds. we will see some fog out of the
6:35am
west, and inland, you will see the clouds drifting up out of the south which will make for some interesting changes in the weather ahead. temperature wise today is like friday, 80s and low 90s inland, but tomorrow, soaring into the 90s, and chances of early showers next week. >> and for today's top spot, we are heading out to florida today. the orlando florida area and the celebration of running. thousands of runners are gathering this morning for track shack's annual 5k celebration. the incident will mark the official start of running season. i didn't know there was a running season. and our friends at our orlando affiliate wesh will be there all day. so if you're in the area and you're a runner, it's a great day to check that out down in florida. a little wet, but it should be a very fun event. don't want to miss the chance to say hi to grandma em in wisconsin. >> thanks so much. now we want to move on to a real mystery. who has a $1 million winning lottery ticket?

6:37am
myself. >> maybe they just don't need the money. after all, it isn't even close to the $338 million won by new jersey's petro kazata in march, or the share of $156 million won by illinois's mel butler last year or one of the three winning tickets in the latest $448 million jackpot cashed in by the so-called ocean 16 group. still, someone has left $1 million out there. who knows, it could be you. in new york state last year alone, $65 million in unclaimed money. if this person doesn't come forward, it goes back in the pot so we can have a chance of winning it. >> i like the idea of winning it, but i hate to think that someone out there is a winner and doesn't know it. you're here until monday? >> here until monday. >> great to see you. thanks. we send it inside and back up to

erica. in today's health, extreme dieting. the iowa department of health issued a warning this week after a woman there tried to lose weight by swallowing a tape worm. it is just the latest example of the dangers of using shortcut toes lose weight. nancy snyderman, good morning. this story had all of us scratching our heads that, a, you can even order a tape worm and, b, that someone would take it. we should point out, not only is this illegal to import or sell tape worms in the u.s. and dangerous, it's not a very effective weight loss tool, correct? it's not effective. and the reason the fda has said this is illegal is because this is what happened. you swallow a tape worm and there are hooks on its head and those hooks go into your intestin intestines. tape worms can grow to be 30 feet and break off in pieces and make more. they can get into your brain, get into your eyes and they can kill you. and while they're in your
6:39am
intestines robbing you of nutrients and food that you need, you don't get skinny. you get sort of a swollen belly and you don't look well. so you may lose a few pounds, but the minute you take the medicine to kill the tape worms, guess what? you go right back to who you are. so this is one of the dumbest thing i've ever heard. >> i like the way you sum it up there, dr. nancy. may be one of the dumbest things, but not the only one out there. a lot of these extreme dieting crazies are on the rise. is it just me or are they on the rise? >> americans do extreme so well. we embrace vomiting and purging off the meals or glutny, but we don't embrace moderation. and i think the sooner you get to look at diet at a four-letter word and you think, how much food do i need as fuel? when can i push myself away from the table and what does that moderation look like? then you're type. increasingly, there's little things that we do every day that trigger the extra weight loss.
6:40am
a glass of wine today is not wa a glass of wine looked like in 1960. that can easily be an extra 250 calories and then invite you to do more. so you can do the starvation diet, the protein only diet, but at some point in your life, you have to go back to normal. unless you learn what that normal is for you, you're not going to be a success approximately. >> we go back to moderation as we wait for the weight to come off. >> and it doesn't many brace obesity as a disease. >> we'll have to do that segment another day. >> this really is just a kookoo dieting for people who aren't really fat. up next, it is a story of inspiration. a major milestone for the city of boston. that's just ahead. first, these messages.
